Hi All,

I got the following script to list all of the VM per datastore, but somehow it display blanks for certain VMs ?

Get-Datacenter | Get-VM | %{ $_.Name + " - " + (($_ | Get-Datastore | select Name).Name) | sort Name } | ft -AutoSize 

Open in new window


can anyone assist me here in refine this script ?

Thanks.

There's certain occasion in which the VM datastore went blank ?
eventhough the VM is actually running and working fine but it was reported as blank eg. no result ?

Hi

Check that VM and see if there is more than one Datastore allocated to that VM. If yes, then you need to create a Foreach to list all the Storage for each VM.
